CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Police are still searching Friday for a knife wielding man who allegedly robbed two people and attempted to rob another person on Thursday night.
The suspect was described by victims as a black or dark-skinned Hispanic male who is over 6 feet tall, said Lt. Daniel Hardman of the Chula Vista Police Department.
The first of the robberies took place at about 8:30 p.m., when a man with a bandana partially covering his face and was armed with a knife walked up to a pedestrian on the corner of Broadway and J Street, and demanded the victim hand over his iPhone and sunglasses.
The suspect then moved south near 4th Street and H Street and demanded property from another man, who refused to give the assailant anything.
The suspect headed south on 4th Street and robbed another person of his iPhone near Shasta Street.
Police used canine units and a helicopter to search for the suspect, who was on foot and is still at-large.
